Default What does GXP stand for?

The best answer I could find for my search of what GXP stands for is, G-Series Xtra Performance. Just wondering if anyone knows.

What is meant by "G-Series"? It can't imply the G as in G8 because Torrent, Solstice. and G6 have GXP models as well. Good question though.

I don't know myself but it's a good question. I can tell you the G does not stand for G series as in G8, G6 because there were GXP versions before the G8 and G6 remember we had a Gran Prix GXP and Bonneville GXP. Just as before it the GTP designation had little to do with series designation.

LOL! Would be accurate at least. I don't think it means anything really, it's just a marketing tag so it just needs to sound cool.

I think they probably had a marketing team decide what combination of letters sounded fast and went with that.

GXP stands for nothing. One of the developers of the Grand Prix GXP use to post on clubgp and he confirmed that it stand for nothing.

The "blank screen syndrome" suggests that the "XP" has something to do with Microsoft.

Seriously, my insurance card lists this car as a "Grand Prix 8", & my title lists it as a "GP8", anyone else have weird things like that showing up?
